Sweet Sweet Lies: Capital of Iceland (single)

~ Thursday, 6 October 2011
Sweet Sweet Lies have adopted a punk folk mix that will be familiar to fans of the glorious Gogol Bordello for this single. Capital of Iceland is perhaps not representative of the Brighton sextet overall sound, which has more in common with Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave than this single suggests, but never the less, this single is as characterful as the band themselves.

Packed with humour and self deprecation, Capital of Iceland is a love song of sorts bristling with energy, fantastic lyrics and enough quirkiness to make it stand out from the crowd. These guys are definitely a band to keep an eye on and If they ever make it up to my neck of the woods, I'll be at the head of the queue for tickets.
